Question about RCA B27TF680 27 in. TV/VCR/DVD Combo

1 Answer

No VCR/DVD Picture or sound

This set was accidentally unplugged when in operation. Now, although the info shows a VCR/DVD playing (you can hear the tape moving and the time on screen is advancing), there is no video or audio. Screen is black except for the information. Have tried all settings of input, but none work.

Re: No VCR/DVD Picture or sound

Your unit may have been switched to Progressive Scan mode, which a normal analogue TV can't recognise. Check your VCR/DVD manual for instructions to change picture settings and set it back to PAL TV.
Failing that try a new 3 conductor lead from unit to TV.  Also unless you yourself were actually the one who accidentally unplugged the unit, it is just possible that whoever did has not (for whatever reason)disclosed to you the full detail of what actually happened to cause it to fail. If it was in fact dropped or fell, pulling on the AV leads they could have been rendered useless or the unit itself might have suffered a Gforce-shock causing component failure or circuit board fracture.
All the best with this one

Have a Toshiba TV model Mv13M3. All of a sudden it turned off, with no sound and no picture and the word "line" in green on the upper rightn hand corner of the screen. Any suggestions?

Although I did not manage to find the manual for this combo set, to check it fully, it seems that maybe someone pressed the remote button marked "Input Selection" that selects each one of the audio/video inputs of the set.

Press it two or three times and check if it cycles the inputs till a TV channel shows on the screen.

Hope this info can help you!

The codes for a combo set are found in the DVD settings or the VCR settings. Try the rca codes for DVD or Vcr and it should work. Although you may find that not all the functions will work properly ( ie: fast forward, open door, etc ). Good Luck

You have your DVD connected to your VCR, which is then connected to your TV, right? The problem is Macrovision. It's designed to prevent you from connecting your DVD player to your VCR, so that you can't make duplicates of copyrighted movies. It's a real pain in the neck. Try turning the DVD player off - or better yet, unplugging its power cord (as some DVD players are always in a standby mode, even when turned off). If that fixes the problem, then you need to reconnect your DVD player directly to the TV, not wired through the VCR. If your DVD player isn't wired through the VCR, are you using some kind of wire splitter (one cable branches into two) to connect both the DVD player and VCR? That can also cause this kind of interference, if both have power at the same time. There are video switches you can get to work around that. Here's one such switch (first I found for a decent price with a google search): Hope that helps.

No display with DVD, VCR, or tuner

It sounds to me without knowing the model or type unit that you may need to unplug tv AND take batteries out of remote for a few seconds, replug and start over. Hope it helps
